Far West Mini Ski Week: The Mini Trip to Winter Park is set for March 24-29, 2019. Registration information is on the website. Winter Park is on the Ikon Pass so people can go on this trip and add a trip to Steamboat, Copper Mtn., or Aspen/Snowmass before or after the trip. Clubs and Councils can bring a group of 12 or more and earn compensation for each person they bring. A great way to raise money for your club or council.
